Thread: New to the game.. little help?

  1. #1

    Unsure

    Hello peoples ...You've got another noob on your hands !
    Now i'm not completely new to p2p , having used K-lite for a couple years and Limewire for some time now as well. I'm feeling completely lost however, standing well out of the safe, comfy K-zone and looking into the huge world of hashing, leeching, and even bittorrent ( like, for all I know there all the same thing, thats how new(bish) I am .) So hears my question ... WHERE DO I START !?!? (sorry, a bit aggrivated ) Seriously though , I need a good all-in-one tut. for complete noobs who dont even have the terminology down yet. Something that will explain everything from what utilties you need to get started, to what verified links, hash links, leeching spots actually are, to how in gods name you use them, so on and so forth. I basically dont know shite and need someplace to start. So any help in that department is beautiful and much appreciated in advance .
    Now, before i get flamed into oblivion, let it be known I went through the stickies but didnt see anything that seemed to be an all-in-one guide for noobs... everything looked more itemized. I searched a bit as well but couldlnt seem to find what im looking for so... little help?
    Alright, thats a good start... any help is again much appreciated

    p.s. This all got started when I tried to find an old space sim called 'freelancer' but had no luck on KL or LW, so , at the suggestion of a bud , started looking into direct sharing. The links Ive found, however, have no real explanation on how they're to used so here I am... damn I loved that game !

    You're asking for way too much info for a noob, it'll addle ya brain.

    heheh ... oh it's already addled, muddled, and befuddled to boot lol ...
    DL'ing games is the main issue Im lookin to work out currently ( specifically a game called "freelancer" .)I love KL and LW for music and shows but dont really trust'em for games anymore so I need to learn these other ways of sharing. I've explored some of the "verified" links , but havent come across an explanation on how to use them so ... I suppose thats a good place to start ... and thanks for the quick response mang

    Imo...I think a good place to start is Emule, it is an all in one program, and is easy to use. It is slow to start with and waiting times are long, but once you start to share more, your speeds will increase.

    It is particularly good for rare stuff

    I found 71 hits for freelancer in the search.

    Check out the emule section for more info.

    I did pick up e-mule and followed all the guides and tuts. I could find for setting up the prefferences in the most rewarding fashion. Seems user friendly enough, even for scrubs . Im gonna have to figure out what firewall is the best one,( had a bad experience tryin to install Kerio right now, had to restore to yesterday because it messed up my connection for a couple hours somehow ) but I'll work it out I'm sure . Course , once I do, then its on to what the hell those .bin files I'm DL'ing are and what in God's name I'm supposed to do with them once I got them . heheheh, always something new . I found tuts. a plenty on that subject though, and am confident I'll figure it out when I need to so dont think I'm fishin'.
    And thanks for the encouragement, though, answering questions in a week may be putting a bit more faith in me than I deserve . However , whatever knowledge you guys do bestow I'll be eager to give back so... you can indeed count on me working you guys out over the next few weeks .
    The super-noob thanks you all again !

    .bin files comes together with .cue files, they are sort of image files like .iso .img and the sorts (in some cases, .cue file is not needed, read the guide on the link below)

    .cue files are "mounted" with software like Alcohol or Daemon and the likes,
    in virtual CD/DVD rom drive where you could possibly burn or use them as is.

    for burning programs, check the Nero, its awsome and lotsa ppl uses it.

    here's one of our own guides about image files, good place to start atleast...

    Spoiler: Show
